At VW Camper Hire we believe we are not just providing a vehicle hire - its more than that – it’s a unique and special experience that we really want you to enjoy! So we do as much as we can to cater for all your needs to make sure you get the adventure you deserve! We are based in Southampton in the county of Hampshire.
Our campervans for hire include the classic 1970s Volkswagen Type 2 van, originally converted to camper vans back then and lovingly renovated inside and out by our dedicated team. What does that mean? It means you get the iconic Summer Of Love experience with the subtlety of modern convenience.
We want to make your holiday run as smoothly as our campers do! That's why we've fitted electronic ignition and a catalytic converter to keep your carbon footprint down. In addition to the usual FM radio/CD player combination, in some of the vans we've also fitted an FM transmitter to hook your MP3 player up to the stereo, so your iPod, phone or whatever can play through the van's own speakers.
The campervans each have a mains battery and a leisure battery. The leisure battery is charged up when you're on the move and will last for about 7 hours. It works the fridge, electric tap, ignition on the hob and interior lights. This means the vehicles main battery is never used for these bits and pieces. We recommend that you plug into a campsite's electrical hook-up to keep it charged overnight. The electric sockets and the heater only work off the mains hook up.
You'll be lovely and warm with independent heating system in the van when you're on the move. For cooking, you've got a small gas hob and a grill. We supply crockery, cutlery, utensils, pots and pans. Click here for a full list of inventory.
Our VW campers can sleep four - two on the rear rock and roll double bed (it converts quickly and painlessly into a bed) and two children in the beds or hammocks in the pop-top roof. Of course, since the van can seat five, there's no reason you can't use an awning to sleep someone in or a popup tent just outside the van...you can draw straws every night to see who gets to rough it.
We are open all year, please visit our website for more information.
